RAYNE - Casey Brook Savoy of Crowley and Joshua Joseph Smith of Estherwood were united in holy matrimony on the evening of Saturday, June 8. Justice of the Peace Wayne Doucet officiated the 7 p.m. nuptial ceremony at the historic Warehouse Event Center in Rayne.
The bride is the daughter of Patricia and Wesley Doucet of Crowley. She is the granddaughter of LeBertha Savoy of Church Point and the late Roy Savoy, and Gloria Doucet of Rayne and the late Calvin Doucet.
Casey graduated from Crowley High School in 2006 before completing the medical assistant program at Louisiana Technical College in Crowley. She is presently employed at Acadia Women’s Health in Crowley, where she has been since 2008.
The groom is the son of Sharon and Sherman Smith Jr. of Crowley. He is the grandson of Betty and Newjay Richard of Kaplan, and Deanna and Sherman Smith Sr. of Crowley.
Joshua, who graduated from Crowley High School in 2002, attended Louisiana State University at Eunice before accepting his current employment with Precision Drilling in 2005.
The wedding party entered to the soulful and spiritual “Everything” by Lifehouse.
Escorted by her father, the bride was gorgeous in a full-length ivory ballgown with a tulle-overlaid skirt. The strapless, fitted bodice featured a slightly curved neckline and was embellished in its entirety with bead work and sequins embroidered in a floral motif. A satin ribbon defined the gown at its natural waistline, and the back of the skirt flowed into a chapel-length train. For her headpiece, Casey selected a matching veil trimmed with sequins.
She carried a clutch bouquet of four white roses surrounded by mixed flowers in Malibu blue, with hand-tied stems wrapped in pearls.
In keeping with tradition, the earrings that Casey wore were “something old;” the necklace and bracelet completing her jewelry ensemble were “something new;” her dress was “something borrowed;” and her shoes were “something blue.”
Chelsae Abshire, friend of the bride, served as maid of honor. Serving as bridesmaids were Sadie Marceaux and Nicki Hebert, sisters of the groom; Courtney Hebert, cousin of the groom; and Jaysa Marceaux and Ansley Boudreaux, goddaughters of the groom.
Robin Jardell, godchild of the bride, served as flower girl.
The groom’s cousin, Jeremy Richard, served as best man. John Hebert, brother-in-law of the groom; Robby Champagne, friend of the groom; and Ryan Hebert, cousin of the groom, stood as groomsmen.
Brayden Smith, the groom’s son, served as ringbearer.
Immediately following the wedding, the couple celebrated with an on-site reception at the Warehouse.
The bride’s cake was made of three square layers topped with the initial “S.” It was decorated with frosting fleurs-de-lis, and the middle layer was wrapped with a blue ribbon adorned with a fleur-de-lis. It was served by Leatrice Jardell, the bride’s godmother.
The groom’s cake was a red velvet sheet cake bearing an edible picture of an oil rig and was served by his godmother, Kim Boudreaux.
Following a honeymoon cruise to Cozumel, Mexico, the couple is residing in Estherwood.
